See Some Mystery Dungeon: Shiren the Wanderer 4 Screens

By Spencer . October 9, 2009 . 5:15pm

image After a shipwreck, Shiren and his trusty talking weasel, Koppa, find themselves in another pickle. The islanders think they’re monsters and tie them to a stake. Kamina, the game’s heroine, attempts to saves them from a fiery fate, but puts herself in danger. A jaguar priest ties her up and sends Shiren out to procure the Jaguar’s Eye to prove he’s not a demon.


That’s where dungeon crawling comes in.


Dungeons in Shiren the Wanderer 4 have a day/night system and traps in narrow hallways in between rooms. Yikes!

Fortunately, Shiren has a new set of tricks that give him new abilities like attacking multiple enemies at once.

Spike, not Sega, will publish Shiren the Wanderer 4 in Japan this winter. Lately, Spike has been dealing with Atlus who is also localizing Shiren the Wanderer 3. Perhaps, we’ll see Shiren the Wanderer 4 in the States under a different name?

  • Looks AWESOME.

    Already have Shiren 3 pre-ordered, hope this comes to the U.S. as well.

    It’s a shame that Atlus didn’t opt to bring Shiren 2 before Shiren 3. It would be nice to see Shiren 4 in english, but the lack of Akiman art does not sit well.

    • But, Shiren DS 2 isn’t really “Shiren 2”, it’s an enhanced re-release of Shiren for Game Boy 2. Shiren 2, the main one from the SNES, hasn’t been remade yet so it wouldn’t have made a difference.

        So we really aren’t missing out on anything…except that more Shiren can never be a bad thing! Thanks for clearing that up.

        64, not SNES. You are thinking of Fushigi no Dungeon 2: Fuurai no Shiren which is.. Shiren 1!

        Shiren 2 was on the 64.
